Woods is hitting the road this Summer & Fall, with dates running from now til the end of September. In July the band will tour the East Coast and Midwest with Parquet Courts, including a return trip to Pitchfork Fest in Chicago. In September they'll headline their own Woodsist Festival, with events in Big Sur and Pioneertown, California - on the Sept. West Coast run they'll be joined by pals The Fresh & Onlys. The band will release a new single on July 9 in celebration of the tour, and on the B-side they cover The Kinks' "God's Children."
More about the new single:
The recording of these songs serves as a farewell to Rear House, Woods' home, recording studio, creative refuge and beloved shithole for 10 long years. "God's Children" is a classic Kinks tune from the soundtrack to the 1971 British film "Percy." "Be All Be Easy," originally from 2011's Sun and Shade, was re-recorded to capture the live form that's taken shape since it's original release. Both are the first Woods recordings to feature new drummer, Aaron Neveu.
